This Is Why I LOVE Houseplants!
I think you all know at this point that I love houseplants. Why? Because my Grandma Eldred did, my Grandma Baldwin did (she died when I was three so don’t remember, but have heard) and my Mom does, too. But, the biggest reason is the fact that on this cold first day of Spring in Michigan, these are all blooming in my home. Who needs tulips and daffodils?
|Amaryllis– Hippeastrum ‘Exotica’|
|Kalanchoe hildebrantii –bloom about 1/4″ across|
|Clivia miniata almost in bloom|
|African violet ‘Silverglade Meadows’|
|Dendrobium atroviolaceum ‘Pygmy’ x ‘H&R’|
|Dendrobium Hsinying Cruenzuki|
|Tillandsia caput-medusae beginning to bloom|
|Aeschynanthus ‘Coral Flame’|
|Baptistonia echiniata or bee orchid|
|African violet ‘Halo’s Aglitter’|
|Thanksgiving cactus -bloom fell off today, but blooming all week|
|Double peach hibiscus|
|Euphorbia milii ‘Fireworks‘|

I hope you enjoyed these flowers on this first day of Spring. Remember houseplants can make the winter bearable!
